Thanks for the hints. I will see if I can find something about that on the forum settings.

Hi

I also want to rant, but my dislike is only for FHS, which I think it is the worst of the Linux world. But beside FHS I'm fine with RPM/YUM and ANPM really helped with the lack of GUI for it.

But all the software ported from the *nix world to OS/2 is helpful to us. There is a lot of software that uses libraries like libc, pixman, cairo, SDL etc., and having that libraries ported to OS/2 make it easy for developers to also make ports (and even new software) to run (natively) under this platform. It is hard to find people with skill on the classic OS/2 API (CPI, Presentation Manager, SOM and WPS) today, so sticking strictly to that classic API will let us without a lot of modern applications. Maybe that's is why it is faster for an OS/2 developer (without money or an army of developers) to have the p7zip DLL ported instead of trying to adjust all *nix software ported to use a "classic API" zip tool.

And, about having the manual in my native language (Spanish) and a INF format, I prefer to have the application ported first and if I want a specif manual for the OS/2 platform I would help the developer to format it on a wiki or translate it so he/she did not spend time on that kind of tasks.

Having personal preferences for OS/2 1.x, 2.x, Warp 3 or Warp 4.0 is ok. But I think that a developer can not focus to port software to every version in time of the "Classic OS/2 API". With the limited resources that the community have I found it alright to focus on the 4.52 level of the API.

I think that is good today that developers have more choice under the OS/2 platform. They can develop with the "Classic OS/2 API" (which source code remains on IBM's basement) or they can use a "Open API" (which evolved over time) to create their applications on OS/2. Or they can even mix the two APIs :) . As users we have the benefits of both sides, OS/2 created with the "Classic OS/2 API" runs and newer applications (made with the "Open API") from the open source community are also available.

Thank Alex.

With your latest patch the application is working fine. I just tested it and worked. You may close the ticket I opened.

Hi Alex.

It is strange but I can not access ticket 1191. It says "Access Denied".
Should it be this link? https://mantis.arcanoae.com/view.php?id=1191

Hi

Please post back the pci.exe report like : "pci.exe > pciout.txt" so I can post it on the OS2World wiki. Also with the wifi hardwareId we can get a hint if the card is supported in some way.

Hi Mike

Can it be possible for you to share the pci.exe report of your ThinkPad X250 to also be included on the wiki page?

Hi

FYI: I just confirmed on my VM. If you remove all network adapters from the "Adapters and Protocols" 1.12 (which it is not a common thing since everybody wants to have a network adapter there) it will set "protocol.ini" to:
Quote
[PROT_MAN]

   DRIVERNAME = PROTMAN$

[IBMLXCFG]

It will prevent "Adapters and Protocols" to load again with that "crippled" protocol.ini if you save it, but I can not replicate the trap on the VM yet.

I'm not sure if I should open a ticket for it on ArcaOS Mantis yet. It is not a bug, but it is lack of prevention on the app to stop the users to do harmful things.  I also can not find the right "Project Category" to open the ticket.

Regards

  More often than not, information contained in the DMI tables is inaccurate, incomplete or simply wrong. 

Hi Pete.

Maybe that is what we can expect from "dmidecode.exe". I will try it on other systems next week to see if it fails.

Paul Smedley has ported LSUSB which will do the job. There is an LSUSB link on his libusb-1-0 page.

Code: [Select]
lsusb -v

Thanks Wim, I didn't know about lsusb. I'm playing with it right now.

Hi

I just booted (removing some networks stuff from boot)  and protocol.ini was incomplete:

Code: [Select]
[PROT_MAN]

   DRIVERNAME = PROTMAN$

[IBMLXCFG]

I restored the information and it seems to be back in business.  "Adapters and Protocols" it is working now.

Thanks Valerius.

Hi

Today I tried to boot that PC again and got a trap on PROTMAN.

I tried Alt+F1 and F2 and get the same trap too.

I did not delete "protocol.ini" (or at least not intentionally).

Hi Pete

I just run "dmidecode.exe >report.txt" and got the report from that mainboard. It even seems we are using the same version of dmidecode, would it be something incompatible with the BIOS?
